What kind of a character is to be the firewood cutter today and what are the matters that could introduce him into the context of contemporary art? The firewood cutter is the person of childbirth and cognition. A person of breakdown and creation. Of synthesis and test. He is above all the one that rises upfront and states his power of chopping the wood. He does not find it to be timid towards nature when holding the axe which becomes the tool of cognition. One can seize the tension of his muscles when his arms are raised up. The firmness of his mind and his intention. One can infer the quantum of power and energy considering the swollen veins, the strained temples, or the sweat leaking on his forehead. The firewood cutter is also a person of sublimation. He converts a product of nature - the wood - into a matter of survival. Or into a matter of settings and ornamentals. At a certain point he is the rebel who sublimates the beast in himself in order to create the civilization. Or according to Carl Gustav Jung, sublimation holds a decisive role in the process of formation and development of the civilization. The higher the frustrations of the contemporary man grow - the more and more important is the need to heal the stocked psychical energy by investing into concrete material.
We can undertake the process of firewood cut as a total amount of early labor of the human kind with the purpose of modeling the surrounding environment, the space around and the objects completing it. No doubt that the initial purpose of modeling objects was one of purely practical matter. Though at a certain point there came a sort of a scission, a step from the practical matter to an ideatic or artistic one. In this sense we may perceive the firewood cutter as a link between the practical man and the creative man. Speaking through terms of Nietzsche, the firewood cutter is the person of surpassing.
